  • Summary: This game has a unique setting. It's unfortunate that the setting is ALL that it has going for it. It is punishingly buggy and its mechanics and graphics are at least 4-5 years out of date for the MMO market. The developers are some of the most communicative that I've ever seen, yet still manage to be chronically and tragically out of touch with what their players want and need.

  • Summary: There's a thread on the GnH forum speculating on the recent addition of so many (unexpected) favorable user reviews, and coming shortly after the company announced "aggressive new measures" designed to attract new users. Looks like it was Heatwave Employee day on Metacritic. Sorry, but desparate measures don't revive a failed launch. These are NOT the droids you're looking for. Fini.

  • Summary: The unusual setting of ancient Rome is a welcome break from the traditional fantasy settings of most MMOs. I like the look of the game. So far the gameplay is pretty traditional for an MMO, but the minions and estate system bear promise.

  • Summary: So I've been playing this game for a week now and I have to say it's been cool to play with my friends in a space that's not a rip off of WOW...it does have it's flaws...but over all it's a nice change of pace...I've only been playing PC games for a year now so I'm new to the space but from what I've seen so far this is pretty cool.

  • Summary: The game fits its niche well. I feel like the foundation is all there (solid gameplay), and the extra polish and content (presumably in the works) will make it a really great value in this space.

  • Summary: This title doesn't include enough content at launch to justify its cost. I expect more than a week's worth of activities from a modern subscription-based MMO, especially one at this price point. While the content was reasonably engaging along the way, there was just absolutely nothing for my character to do one it reached the maximum level of 30. This took me less than 24 hours of actual game-play time.

  • Summary: The launch content is woefully inadequate as you can finish the content in about a day of play, combine that with a swag of bugs, an endless list of missing/promised features that were supposed to be the games selling point and the fact it is just another fantasy MMO (but done badly), this game was highly disappointing, maybe in 6 months after they implement the rest of the game (if it lives that long) it might be worth a try, right now it is just a waste of money.

  • Summary: I'm surprised that folks think this game doesn't have enough content. It has thousands quests to do at launch, plenty of zones, instances, abilities, skill trees, and a nice long character progression time (if you solve this game in 24 hours, you're insane or just know the game extremely well). I give it an 8, due to graphics issues and sporadic bugs, which most likely will be fixed over its lifetime (there are many less graphics issues than in beta).

  • Summary: I will keep this short and too the point. The game is good, and creative. I think anyone could enjoy it out of the box, however I do not know what max level will bring yet. For the price it is keeping me entertained, more than your average game. The one down side is it seems to be a *ninja* great game. No one knows how good it is because no one is playing it. I am, and I must say I am impressed with the gameplay I LOVE it, but the graphics, and audio need some work.
